for president obama. i think he's done a very good job of building a broad international coalition, and for the first time, i think we're seeing signs that it's having an impact on the iranian regime and the iranian economy. we're seeing gasoline sales drop by 90% in a year. we're seeing $60 billion dollars in energy investments frozen. we're seeing scores of international energy companies and banks and insurance companies pulling away from iran. it is having a significant impact. and at the same time, we're seeing a green movement, which though was brutally crushed last year, it's still part of the fabric of iranian society. it's in every corner of iranian society. it has gone underground, but it is still robust. and it's the only thing that has rattled this regime so far. so, by combining sanctions, economic sanctions, with moral sanctions that support the human rights movement in iran, i think we've got a better than average shot. >> gary, picking up on your earlier metaphor, are sanctions against iran the "do good" kind or the "feel good" kind? >> well, they're firstly and fore

, and our lationship with him. so i think, you know, we're walking... i think the obama administration has it correct here. i think they understand from the get-go they've understood exactly what our goals are. wu we also have other interests. we need to be sensitive to them. egypt was a critical player in the peace process of the middle east. we don't want a catastrophic failure of prevention on the gaza strip and on the border with egypt. we don't want radical movement of one kind or another to fill any vacuum. we don't want send a message to friends that we don't understand those kinds of sensitivities. so i think the key here has been to make clear that we understand and are sympathetic to and supportive of the aspirations of the people of egypt, that we know there's a need for change. but to make it responsible change. change that can be affected with accountability and transparency and ultimately hopefully with an outcome that permits the aspirations the people are expressing in the street to actually be fulfilled, to be worked on, to be advanced. that's the key here. and it's a tri

's not going to leave the country. president obama urged an even quicker transition. let's go to brian williams and richard engle live in cairo. gentlemen, you've been watching all of this enfold. give us a sense about how this has been changing and developing over the last several hours today. >> chris, if you just tossed to us, we can only see that we're on. what i heard of what you were saying pretty much sums up what is happening. the square has been known for days as a unified district under sole control of the anti-mubarak demonstrators. that can't be stayed any more of the square today. it's now home to two camps and they are clashing the egyptian army. they've been sitting around the tanks peacefully. they have taken something of refuge in the gate at the museum, in the shot that we've been looking at. sticks, stones. we watch these pro mubarak protesters come in on horses and camels. they went past our location. and minutes later, we were able to see them meet up with and clash with the anti-mubarak demonstrators. still, if you had to do the math and the numbers in this city, the anti

administration and ultimately approved under the obama administration and signed by the current attorney general. the key piece here, if i may, is that you have to -- obviously, there are going to be places where you have to do law enforcement investigations. in my view, you have to have a balanced approach of not just those law enforcement investigations, but you have to engage with those communities with other non-law enforcement elements of the u.s. government to make sure this is not an adversarial situation. in fact, this is a partnership. and as you know well, many of our tips to uncover active terrorist plots here in the united states have come from the muslim community. so we have to make quite clear that the communities are part of the solution and not part of the problem. and you do that through using a variety of tools, not just law enforcement. >> time of the gentlelady has expired. dr. brown of georgia. >> thank you, mr. chairman. secretary, director, i appreciate y'all being here today. i have several pressing questions for both of you. and in the limited amount of time, it will al

'donnell doesn't really approve of. after [laughter] i was so genuinely inspired by president obama's team, his call to win the future. of course it was a little unfortunate that the acronym for win the future is wtf. [laughter] that's why i was so glad our vice president stepped in and offered a different contract, building futures daily. yeah. [laughter] but seriously, folks, what we in congress and you in journalism do every day is to build a better future for the country. if you will indulge me for just one more minute, i will say honestly how much i admire the folks who are here this evening, the people who don't just have a job, don't just work in the media but find in journalism a profession and calling. it was just in the past few weeks that we have seen individual examples of the sort of courage, bravery and risking of one's self to give a window into what's really going on on the ground. as journalists have braved the most chaotic circumstances to give a glimpse into the reality of change. in the world with more sources of information today than ever before, your work is more essentia

w. bush, barack obama, americans have been told they are poor because america and its allies are motivated by hatred for liberty, way of life and democratic institutions. this is a palpable, lethal lie. we are being attacked because of our elite half-century we let us intervention the muslim world. it is accumulative impact from the 50 years of interventionism that we find the main motivation of america's islamist enemies as well as the print both organizational glue that provide the monica of unity to the movement always fragile cohesion. the islamist motivation is to be found in their perception of u.s. foreign policy is an attack on the islamic religion and its followers. this is a view held not only by those carrying ak-47s, but extend the polling by a delightful that nearly 80% of all muslims worldwide, young and old, moderate and militant men and women. no american must accept the islamist indictment of the anti-muslim intent of u.s. foreign policies. but to avoid military defeat, economic ruin and widespread domestic violence, u.s. leaders must have knowledge and expla

for the obama administration to make sure that this administration and the united states in general takes a tough stance on president mubarak. fredricka? >> sandra endo, thanks so much joining us from by phone as they walks with the demonstrators there to the white house. >>> so tahrir square isn't the only protest site. there have been demonstrations outside the parliament building as well. here is ben wedeman. >> reporter: it's hard to ignore their racket, angry work eers, pro-democracy activists, of the generally disgruntled. all of whom have turned this street outside the egyptian parliament into a stage for protest. these workers have been keeping it up around the clock for more than two weeks. their agriculture machinery factory was privatized and sold to foreign investors, production was hapted, and it's been months since anyone have been paid. empty promises are all we've gotten, he says. this man used to work for another privatized factory. the workers haven't been paid in four months, and the owners won't budge, he says. this is the spring of egypt's discontent fueled by politic

considering running against president obama. i'm here with our colleague who has been here the past couple of days who has heard some of the speeches. who do you think were some of the winners and some of the losers out of here presidential candidates? >> as you mentioned, almost a dozen presidential candidates and it's totally wide open. you see here with all these candidates, with a lack of activity in the early presidential race, a lot of expectations being set. would mitt romney address the controversial health care plan in massachusetts to this crowd of conservative activists. would mitch daniels address the claim there should be a truce on social issues. by and large, all of these candidates -- really, there were no big mistakes. no one blew it out of the park. just again, reflects how wide open the early presidential race is at this point, fred. >> i wonder, peter, no one really blew it out of the park but might there be one or two who might be among the most memorable from this cpac conference where people will say to themselves, you know what, i think he or she's got it. >> right.
